Lee Hills is highly unlikely to return to action this season following his ligament rupture at Pride Park last April.

The 20 year old was originally expected to be out for about 8 months with the injury, but after numerous complications you would be hard pushed to expect to see him in a shirt before the start of the next campaign.

Speaking to the Crydon Advertiser Freedman did however say it wasn’t all doom and gloom for the player as it’s expected he will return to light training within a fortnight.

‘Lee’s been coming on really well, in two weeks I think he will be ready to get out on the grass again with us.’

Obviously the next hurdle will be in seeing if there are any issues once he returns to training, but hopefully he won’t suffer any additional breakdowns and he can spend the next few months working steadily on his fitness so he can hit next season running.

Injuries like this are horrible at any age, but they always seem far more unfair when they hit a youngster starting to make a name and a career for themselves at a club.
